This medium sized plot incorporates lots of stylish features, ensuring that this Thai garden is one that will be remembered fondly. The main focal point is the large series of water baths / ponds, linking the heavy planting along the back of the garden to the sala in the north east corner. A clever arrangement of sprinklers in the pondscape provide cooling water movement and background noise throughout the landscape, and make the sala a welcome place to rest.
Beside the pond to the south lies a well trimmed lawn, for children and general play. Heavy planting and trees line the back of the plot and add to a pleasant traditional, tropical feel.
For those too lazy to venture to the sala, a wooden deck terrace lies just outside of the homestead, and with a large covering pergola along the left and upper edges, blocking the sun throughout the whole day in this particular spot of the garden.
A secluded heavily planted region at (6) provides a nice place to sit on a rustic brickwork terrace, whilst taking in the views, listening to the gentle noise of the sprinkling water amongst a heavily planted tropical setting.
